Hi there,

Over the last one year and a half I've tried to install PyQt on several 
versions of Linux, including Mandrake 8.0 until 8.2. Often without 
succes, for a variety of reasons. With the release of KDE 3.02, PyQt 
3.3.2 and SIP 3.3.2 I decided to give it another try.

First I installed KDE 3.0.2 on Mandrake 8.2. Works fine.
I compiled and installed SIP, also succesfull.
I compiled and installed PyQt with no obvious errors.

However, a small test file (generated with pyuic) crashed with the 
eror-message (trace-back)

ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/ undefined 
symbol: metaObject+C90SGIStyle

So I read through the docs again and found out that on Mandrake and 
Debian you had to include #define QT_NO_STYLE_SGI in the 
/usr/lib/qt3/include/qconfig.h header file.

Now PyQT refused to compile.

So I about to give up. ANy idea what is going wrong? Is there a solution
